Grade 4 » Introduction In Grade 4, instructional time should focus on three critical areas: (1) developing understanding and fluency with multi-digit multiplication, and developing understanding of dividing to find quotients involving multi-digit dividends; (2) developing an understanding of fraction equivalence, addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators, and multiplication of fractions by whole numbers; (3) understanding that geometric figures can be analyzed and classified based on their properties, such as having parallel sides, perpendicular sides, particular angle measures, and symmetry. Students generalize their understanding of place value to 1,000,000, understanding the relative sizes of numbers in each place. Operations and Algebraic Thinking Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems.Gain familiarity with factors and multiples.Generate and analyze patterns.

Project-Based Learning: Benefits, Examples, and Resources Project-based learning is an instructional approach designed to give students the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills through engaging projects set around challenges and problems they may face in the real world. Project-based learning, or PBL, is more than just projects. As the Buck Institute for Education (BIE) explains, with PBL students "investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging, and complex problem, or challenge" with deep and sustained attention.

It's not hard to argue against someone who believes students should be technology free in schools.
20 Examples Of Project-Based Learning 20 Examples Of Project-Based Learning For A Modern World by TeachThought Staff In 13 Brilliant Outcomes Of Project-Based Learning, we gave a quick example of project-based learning to illustrate the relationship between learning objectives and the products and artifacts produced by project-based learning. “As the name implies, project-based learning is simply learning through projects.
Discover Your Learning Style: The Definitive Guide by Becton Loveless Each person has different learning preferences and styles that benefit them. Some may find they even have a dominant learning style. Others that they prefer different learning styles in different circumstances. There is no right or wrong answer to which learning style is best for you – or mix of learning styles. By discovering and better understanding your own learning styles, you can employ techniques that will improve the rate and quality of your learning. Top PBL News Stories Here are some articles, blog posts, research studies, and other resources I’ve recently run across that relate to Project Based Learning. How Learning Happens Edutopia Check out this wonderful video series, informed by the work of Linda Darling-Hammond of the Learning Policy Institute and Pamela Cantor of Turnaround for Children. Several of the videos connect directly to PBL; all are worth watching. Students Learn From Someone They Love The New York Times This connects to two of our Project Based Teaching Practices, Build the Culture and Engage & Coach: Columnist David Brooks talks about the importance of personal relationships between teachers and students, citing brain research on the connection between positive emotions and learning.
Glossary of Online Learning Terms ASYNCHRONOUS LEARNING: When learners participate in an online learning course at different times, it is known as asynchronous learning. This might also be called eLearning or web-based training (WBT). Asynchronous learning allows learners to go through a course at their own pace and on their own schedule. AUDIO CONFERENCING: Audio conferencing refers to a connection between three or more locations that involves a voice-only connection. This can be done via telephone or via the computer.
PBL in a Video Production Class by Nick Weiss Teacher and Director of Innovative Teaching and Learning, Prince of Peace Christian School (Carrollton, TX) Every time I assign a major video project early in the year in my high school Video Production class, I get a mixed bag of results. While my aim is always for students to produce professional-grade videos, I realize that the amount of core knowledge and feedback required to get there would burn out any student in one project. It takes a number of projects to get videos to the professional level. Keeping Robots Friendly: Meet The Woman Teaching AI About Human Values Anca Dragan has a cool name, an impressive CV and an important job. While many roboticists focus on making AI better, faster and smarter, Dragan is also concerned about robot quality control. In anticipation of robots moving into every area of our lives, she wants to ensure our interactions with robots are positive ones. The computer scientist and robotics engineer is a principal investigator with UC Berkeley’s Center for Human-Compatible AI. “One particular area of interest is the problem of value alignment,” says Dragan.
